NBA November 6th – Joel Embiid is Back from Suspension

61-53-2 on NBA in 2017/18 up 9.28 units

30-28-2 on NBA in 2018/19 up 4.16 units 

6-6 on NBA in 2019/20 down 1.31 units

76ers +2 at -110 for 3 units. THE RAUL NETO RETURN GAME we have all been waiting for.

 

Donovan Mitchell wore his definition of a rookie hoodie that Ben Simmons didn’t “fit”. Simmons won NBA Rookie of the Year in his 2nd season because he didn’t play a game in his first season. 76ers are one of the best rebounding teams in the league. Ed Davis is out for Utah, which means Philly should win the battle in the paint against Gobert. 76ers have covered in every game Embiid has played. Jazz are 2-5 ATS.

College Basketball Day 2 Predictions – Boston College against Wake Forest

70-62-2 on NCAAB last season up 8.95 units

1-5-1 this season down 4.05 units 

Clemson will never be good at basketball I guess. Dook won. Kentucky won. I won my big unit play on William & Mary and lost everything else. Old Dominion was close, then got down a lot, and the pushed. My VCU team looked good at home, but not great. More plays tonight..

Boston College at -170 for 5 units. Nik Popovic is the consistent big man that can get some crafty, easy points for Boston College tonight. Derryck Thornton, the transfer from Duke and Southern California will help out BC in the backcourt. Jay Heath is a Washington DC point guard that should be able to play a lot of minutes in his freshman year for the Eagles. Boston College wins the battle in the paint and wins the game. Wake Forest does have some talented freshman and Brandon Childress, but may need some more time to gel.

South Carolina -19 at -115 for 2 units. North Alabama had two good players last season and they lost one, Kedarius Smith. Jamari Blackmon of Hoover High (remember MTV) is a solid sophomore, but South Carolina should win by a lot. Keyshawn Bryant, A.J. Lawson, and Maik Kotsar will have to step up this season with 4 or 5 notable departures for the Gamecocks. Jermaine Couisnard is a redshirt freshman from Chicago that could be a great player for South Carolina. He can get hot. All in all, South Carolina has more talent and should be able to shut down Blackmon and North Alabama.
